When the show started the staff went around and pulled the curtains over the big windows to make even a semblance of dark in the hall. Feel Like a Stranger was long and VERY strange - my psychedelic dessert was just kicking in. The rest of the 1st set was nothing to write home about. The second set was terrific - especially the last section of Uncle John's Band. Like another reviewer noted, Truckin' was great until Garcia decided it was time to do "The Big Hit Single" and botched the transition to Alabama Getaway. We got up and left, made it across the street to a pizza joint and were on our second beer before the crowd showed up, so everyone went home happy - !!

Subject: second set...WHOA!
In the second row Phil side for this one. The first set was well played but nothing spectacular. The jam in between Scarlet>Fire is sublime. The communication between the players is incredibly telekinetic. Listen to it in headphones. It's amazing and the quality of this recording brings it out. The first guitar break in Fire is EPIC! Everything culminates in a band/crowd freak out! Jerry definitively RIPS!! Whoa! The hairs on my arms are standing up just thinking about it. I remember totally freaking out at that point big time!! The space>UJB was totally unique. Bobby was making these weird whale sounds with his slide. The jamming in UJB is frenetic. Great Phil bombs too. The end of Truckin' is really intersting too. The band stops as Jerry kind of jams himself into a corner and then Alabama Getaway? It was very strange.
I had a Nak 700 1st gen FOB of this show and I think that this recording is alittle better. It's a keeper! Dave Minchen, if you're out there, thanks for kidnapping me!

Subject: listen to this one.
One of the shows i've had the longest and among my favorites. The Scarlet Fire is standard great. Any time UJB comes out of Space you know yer in for something good. the UJB is followed by a minature Spanish Jam for Cinco de Mayo and as a precurser to the next night's full blown Sp. Jam (generally believed to be the 'return of that jam but REALLY! listen to this one!)

This source is good. very listenable and I def. recommend it.

Subject: loss of reason
I remember very little about this show, prior to the Uncle John's Band...that is when I was able to climb from under my folding chair on the side of the stage, and deal with the unusually high level of shroomage I had erronesouly ingested...from there on, I was at ease

Subject: Cinco De Mayo
This show recording is a prime example of how the band coaxes the crowd, the crowd coaxes the band and electricity is the result....Raw, with warts, a fine, fine show....Thank you GD.
